From 11.59 p.m., Thursdays, 7 July – 8 September 2022
28-year-old Shinno Akari is a detective with Higashi Kanagawa Police Precinct’s Violent Crimes Unit. She has had the special ability to see the feelings of a person whom she makes eye contact with as colours after her parents’ shocking murder 15 years ago. The colours of feelings do not lie and she uses this to figure out the real criminal in the interrogation room. Kazehaya Ryo was one of the elite at the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department until an incident leads to his transfer to the Kanagawa Prefectural Police. He is questioning 18-year-old Unobuchi Sakiko who jumped from a hotel’s fire escape with a man called Iwatagawa Shunsuke. Although she survived because she landed on shrubbery, Shunsuke died. Before they jumped, Sakiko had posted a video that she had taken with Shunsuke on social media with the hashtag #coupledyinginafewminutes and their conversation hinted at their impending death. Is this a lovers’ suicide or an ingeniously plotted murder? While Kazehaya is listening to Sakiko, Akari enters the interrogation room. She opens a sketchbook with colourful shades and tries to gauge how Sakiko is doing. Suspicious of Akari’s behaviour and unable to understand that she see feelings, Kazehaya opposes the order for them to work together to identify the real criminals and truth behind baffling cases.
